Colour and Sound are two of the key ingredients to great drumming. While sound is fairly obvious, colour (the British spelling) is especially important when playing in free jazz circles. That's where Jimmy Bennington has spent much of his career, exploiting his percussive palette in group improvisations. It doesn't hurt that he studied with John Coltrane's drummer, Elvin Jones. He'll be joined at the Bop Shop by Fred Jackson on saxophone, Jerome Croswell, trumpet, and Ed Schuller, bass.
